Rocking a slim, well crafted brushed metallic body, the Tecno PhonePad 3 has a 7-inch display with a 1280 x 720 pixels (HD) screen resolution and a 4100mAh battery (48 hours of usage on a single charge). It comes equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor which also doubles as a mini touchpad for scrolling and boots HiOS based on Android Marshmallow OS.
The phablet packs a quad-core processor alongside 2GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage space, microSD card slot (up to 128GB), rear 13MP camera with Dual True Tone Flash, 5MP camera with Flash and supports 4G LTE networks.
The phablet is focused on business communication and productivity for users on-the-go and also comes pre-installed with premium apps such as Camcard – an electronic business card holder which allow users manage card and contact details, WPS Office and CamsScanner for scanning documents and records on a single tap.
Commenting on the launch, a spokesperson for Tecno Mobiles said;
“The PhonePad 3, is a user friendly high-end device carrying the mission of offering an improved and efficient business life. There is a dilemma for modern business man who thinks a phone is too small to deal with some daily work, while laptop is too heavy to carry around.”
The Tecno PhonePad 3 is available across various retail outlets in Kenya and Nigeria. In Kenya, it is priced at KSh 22,199 which is equivalent to US$ 216 or NGN 68,500.
